My first official blog post! This is a big day for me. It marks the official launch of my website for Nicole Joan Consulting LLC. This has been a long time planning and preparing, and now I am officially ready for business!
I hope this blog serves as an opportunity to discuss topics that are of interest to me (related to grants, nonprofits, youth, and the outdoors) and for the reader to get to know me as well. These posts may be a bit more informal than the rest of my website, and for that matter, many other things I write. However, as someone who enjoys the art of writing, I know that it can be educational, intriguing, or simply therapeutic; this blog may just capture all three!
As you come to know me, you will realize that being your true, genuine, best version of yourself is something that I admire and respect in others. I can only hope to deliver my business services much in the same way: with honesty and integrity. That means being true to myself at all times; only taking on clients whose mission I feel passionate about; establishing a work/life balance throughout my week; and knowing that not everyone fits into the same mold. I may run my services at a more relaxed and personable standard, but ya know what? As long as I am being true to myself, and serving your organization in the best way I possibly can…. I think that’s good business! Ethical business. The way relationships should be.
I am exciting to start this new chapter of my journey and start taking on clients. I am excited to start helping nonprofit organizations find grant funding for their programs. I am excited at the prospect that my skills and strengths can now have the ability to reach a wider audience and positively impact our community. Plain and simple: I’m excited (and scared… I’m only human!).
Now, it’s time to get working!
This blog contains anything and everything nonprofit, grants, youth development, outdoor education, and more. Really, this is just an informal way to chat more about what I love! Enjoy :)
